Careers Centre

The Careers Centre provides support for all registered students as well as graduates for up to three years after graduation.

The centre offers personal advice sessions, workshops and in course training throughout your time in the University.

The University wants to ensure that students have the best possible chance of moving forward from a learning environment to a world of work or further study. The Careers Centre is therefore committed to providing advice in the form of personal one on one sessions and workshops.

The Careers Centre can help you decide on a particular career, prepare you for the transition to the working environment and can advise you on relevant skills and knowledge required to work in a commercial environment. It is located in the Duke Street Building adjacent to the Library, Lecture Theatre, Student Union Office and a social area. The centre recently attained the MATRIX standard, a national quality standard and one which will ensure that you receive a high quality overall service.

Individual advice

Students are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss their career opportunities. The Careers Advisor will be pleased to provide advice and guidance on both choosing suitable career pathways and in supporting you to help yourself in moving forward after a stimulating course at the University.


The Careers Centre provides workshops and input to courses on a range of careers related issues including presentations from practitioners from across the field of the creative industries, job finding, creative CVs, interview skills and organising work experience.

Beyond graduation

All NUA graduates can continue to access the Careers Service for three years after graduation free of charge. Other graduates can still access the service by purchasing an Alumni Card which is valid for three years. Apply for an Alumni Card.
